I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

I've Got Spring Fever!

Linking up with Fertilizer Friday and Cottage Flora Thursdays - link also in my side bar - you must check out all these great gardeners!

Spring Fever ---->That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

My first post for 2011.....
I woke up this morning, the sun  shining bright and beautiful and streaming in my window.  I laid in bed thinking just 2 feet through the wall it is  - 25* below zero wind chill (-15* below temp.) and I am warm and comfy.  I laid there thinking about the things I want to do in my yard this year. 

It is the sun's fault and I have spring fever!

I found a great video of a family in California who have turned their entire yard into a garden.  Another from Wisconsin that has a total ecosystem in their greenhouses on 3 acres - both very cool videos.

So instead of showing you my snowy yard or looking through pix to share that will make me even more spring feverish - I am going to share these video links with you.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for sharing the great videos, and I hope soon it will be warm enough for you to go outside and continue creating your own wonderful garden. The yearning to connect to the earth can be so powerful at times.
